Although there is no such thing as free rehab, government funded places are eventually made available to people who show sufficient willingness and motivation to succeed and require intensive support. They are not very well financed and involve a lot of bureaucracy.
If you want to go for this option, generally, you are required to devote a certain amount of time in community-based programmes prior to being considered for rehab. This is designed to make sure that your drug or alcohol use is stabilized and to also test your drive and focus in succeeding before being sent into rehab.
It is significant to remember that this process lasts a long time and that it is complicated, which means that immediate admission is impossible. You'll be required to be present at many interviews and will need to display a lot of patience, as you'll notice below.
Port of Call cannot intervene to make the process faster but we are willing to assist you in getting into a rehab within your locality.
The NHS provides several outpatient programmes for individuals having alcohol or substance abuse difficulties.
